Thank you for allowing us to stay at your wonderful property, it exceeded our expectations! The swimming pool was an absolute winner with the children (and adults!), and we enjoyed many an evening in the garden enjoying a glass or four of wine! We will certainly recommend the property to family and friends. Johnsons 2014



Great property, great location, great holiday! What more can I say? Colston family June 2014



We were a group of 2 families who had a wonderful holiday, the property is set ideally for either 1 or 2 families, it was very clean upon our arrival. The location was excellent with so many things to do. Puy du Fou is a must for all.

The village restaurant is also to be recommended.

Thank you, we had a great time and will definitely recommend. Paulson 2014

Les Meuniers is located in a quiet road in the village of Pouille, with only a few other houses around. Traffic is very infrequent.The surronding area is very safe for children, with fields and farm tracks around the village that are good for walking and riding bikes etc.

More information on Vendee beaches, attractions, activities etc can be found at the top of this page in the links box to the right.

Located in the South Vendee, Pouille is a small village with 2 very good restaurants (1 is 2 minute walk away and the other is 6 minutes walk)., boulangerie (2 minutes walk) and bar tabac (5 minutes walk). It is a 10 minute drive from the busy market town of Fontenay le Comte with its shops, renaissance buildings and large supermarkets.

There is a lakeside beach located only 15 minutes from the property, there are life guards, picnic areas, walks, childrens play area etc

Coastal Beaches in the Vendée are excellent, clean and sandy. The nearest are approximately 40km away and take a little under an hour to reach. There are three resorts next to each other on the coast, la Tranche-sur-Mer, l'Aiguillon-sur-Mer, and la Faute-sur-Mer . All are excellent for families, for the larger more touristy type of resort les Sables-d'Olonne offers full facilities expected of a more commercialised resort. This very popular resort is 70km away and takes approximately 1½ to reach.

Vouvant is a quiet historic town with a church overlooking a valley and river. There is a very good crêperie and pedalos can be hired out by the hour. This is ideal for the kids as it is only 15 minutes away.

La Rochelle is France's 2nd largest boat building port and the historic Vieux Port remains largely unchanged. A daily fish market can be found in the old town until 12:00 midday. The port is very attractive and waterside cafés and restaurants offer a relaxing break.

Futuroscope is situated near Poitiers, it combines latest cinematic developments with the entertainment and fun of a theme park. there are a dozen or so main attractions comprising some of the largest cinema screens in the world (seven storeys high), 3-d special effects, flight simulators, cinema seats on hydraulic pedestals, all around cinema with picture that extends underneath you, 360degree cinema screens, huge curved screens etc.

Mervent is only a short bike ride from L'Hermenault, it has a dam and a large reservoir. The area has been developed with tourism in mind. There are large wooded areas ideal for walking and particularly mountain biking. There are places where pedalos and wind surfers can be hired, and wind surfing lessons are offered at reasonable rates. There are also restaurants, a small zoo and a very extensive fun park known as 'Pierre Brune', which has dozens of rides from castles, crazy bikes, and slides to hamster wheels and see-saws. This is good value at approximately £3.

Venise Vert is the canal system the Vendée is famous for. There are numerous places (Maillezais is one of the best, 20 min drive from L'Hermenault) where small rowing boats can be hired (with or without guides). Maps are provided and you can navigate round canal systems to set routes.

Puy de Fou is well worth a visit, by day there is a theme park which includes mediaeval jousting, villages with traditional crafts and actors dressed in the period of the day. The highlight is a twice daily display of falconry. The display is held in an amphitheatre with hawks, falcons and eagles swooping over the crowd and collecting food from the falconers who are dressed in traditional costume. This includes every bird of prey you have ever imagined including some enormous vultures. Great fun and highly professional ! By night during the summer Puy de Fou is renowned for holding France's foremost Son et Lumière spectacle.

Île de Ré is a quiet island off La Rochelle, a new road bridge makes it accessible by car. It is picturesque and has numerous beaches, cafés, towns and parks. The cost for the toll bridge is approximately £10 but is free if you cycle or walk out to the island. There is also a very good value golf course on the island.

Cognac is approximately 1½ hours drive south and well worth a visit for the connoisseur. In the centre of the town the best tour is that of the Otard distilleries, where cognac has been made for hundreds of years. A sample session follows the tour, but drivers beware, new laws on drink driving are more strict than UK.

Saumur is more for the wine buff, it is similar distance north and this town on the Loire also offers numerous caves (cellars) along with various historic buildings.

St Emilion is ½ hour drive south of Cognac, this historic wine producing region is for the red wine enthusiasts and boasts excellent tours of vineyards and historic sites.
